Hi Sandra
I usually do Matisse with my 1st graders. I start with the Venezia =
book and a book called "Meet Matisse", talk about how he got interested =
in art after his parents gave him a paint set when he was ill. We kind =
of catagorize his work into the realistic, sorta busy portraits, and the =
cut paper style images. Our first lesson focuses on portrait painting =
and placement of features - week 1 we paint the portrait. Week 2 we =
cover tag board with a collage type background of at least 5 different =
patterns of wallpaper, cut out our portrait and glue on top of the =
wallpaper. The finished work is about 12 x 18 inches. Our followup =
lesson really stems from the "Meet Matisse" book whcih focuses on the =
wheelchair bound Matisse and his cutouts. We discuss the concept of =
abstract art which we define as more difficult to identify real objects =
in the work. We then work to cut out (of colored construction paper) =
-"the blobs" - leaf like shapes, which we attach to a large sheet of =
verically hung roll or banner paper. These banners or panels hang from =
the ceiling and are about 6 feet tall. Through these lessons the kids =
get to explore 2 different styles of Matisse's work. Hope this helps.
